Emmy-winning television star Carson Kressley joined the cast of off Broadway's NEWSical The Musical last night, February 11. NEWSical The Musical is the forever changing, completely un-sanitized musical mockery of all the news that's fit to spoof. From the looming fiscal cliff crisis to the pope opening a Twitter account to Honey Boo Boo, NEWSicalThe Musical sets all of today's biggest pop culture headlines to song. Kressley is the latest star to grace the NEWSical The Musical stage. BroadwayWorld was there for his opening night and you can check out photos from the theatre arrivals below!

Carson Kressley decided to join NEWSical The Musical after seeing his friend Perez Hilton in the show. "I was really impressed with the show and the intelligence of its humor. Perez told me it was a great time and that I should give it a try."

Kressley has starred on several television shows including Lifetime's critically acclaimed How To Look Good Naked, OWN's Carson-Nation, and Bravo's Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, a role that earned him a primetime Emmy. He was voted a "fan-favorite" on ABC's worldwide hit, Dancing With the Stars, and recently completed a headlining gig as the host of Dancing With the Stars Live in Las Vegas.

NEWSical The Musical features Christine Pedi (Sirius XM Host, Little Me, Talk Radio), Michael West (When Pigs Fly, Forbidden Broadway), Tommy Walker (Evil Dead The Musical), Susan Mosher (Hairspray), Emily McNamara (NYC Nightlife star) and Ryan Knowles (host of Nickelodeon's ME:TV).

NEWSical The Musical is directed by Mark Waldrop (When Pigs Fly, My Deah, Inventing Avi, Papermill Playhouse's Gypsy) and produced by Tom D'Angora (Naked Boys Singing!, ICONS, Broadway Diva Christmas, Divas I've Done). Rounding out the creative team are Ed Goldschneider (music director), Jason Courson (set designer), and Ryan Obermeier (stage manager).
